The Payson Jazz Trio performs tunes from The Great AmericanSongbook including swinging jazz and broadway tunes everybody enjoys, the kind that make you want to sing, dance or reminisce.

Bob Smolenski plays the Baldwin grand, Mike Buskirk is on bass, with Gerry Reynolds on drums.

When Dr Jass & the Heartbeats plays you can't stop tapping your toes,until you get up to dance! Imagine the Roaring Twenties - guys andgals doing the Charleston, guys decked out in skimmers or bowlers,and the gals with short skirts (oh my!) It's not just music, but a lot of fun.

Dr Claudio Zamorano is our fearless leader, and he plays cornet and sings. Crazy Mike Buskirk plays slide trombone, tuba, noisemakers andsings too in this set. Suzanne Knighton strums the upright string bass,washboard and sings. Banjo man Dale Knighton also sings. Drummer Gerry Reynolds will play with anybody, but he's not allowed to sing.
